Hollie McNish followers know this no-nonsense wordsmith of epic proportions has by total accident and talent alone made poetry instantly more hip and accessible again for a whole new generation. Whether delivering a soliloquy on sexism, waxing lyrical on the wonders immigration or delivering dramatic diatribes on real-life motherhood and its many challenges, McNish sets the stage on fire with her rapid-fire lyrical attacks, heartfelt words and incredible presence. Radical and unmissable.
